To educate prospective and current clients about the real estate market, I will be answering frequently asked questions. Look for other topics in the weeks ahead. I hope this information answers questions, saves you time, saves you money and helps you avoid headaches and hassles in today's housing market.
The topic for discussion today is understanding the role of a "Buyer's Designated Agent".
Why do I need a Buyer's Agent to help me find and purchase a home?
There's many reasons to use a Realtor to help you find the right home for you.
The 3 most important benefits that you will receive are:
1) Saving you time
2) Saving you money
3) Avoiding headaches and hassles.
Also, using a Realtor (like me) as a Buyers Agent is almost 100% FREE (there may be a small Real Estate Compliance Fee but it's usually less than $200 and does not get paid unless you find a home).
Saving You Time
I think we'll all agree how VALUABLE time is in our busy life-styles.
A Realtor can help you save time by helping you to narrow your search and find just the right home for you. With so many homes on the market currently, some home buyers get over-whelmed by the sheer number of available homes. Helping you to carefully identify what the most important features in a new home will save you time from looking at homes that do NOT match the best home for you.
Let's identify your Dream Home...then let's go get it!
Saving You Money
After we find the perfect home for you, I will guarantee that you WON'T overpay for the home.
I do this by compiling the most recent sold comparable homes (within the last 90 to 120 days).
Using this statistical data, we will create an offer that ensures that you will ONLY pay Fair Market Value....Or LESS!
The art of negotiation is very important and I will frame the offer to get you the MOST home for the lowest price.
Often, you will get a low price AND all the appliances and a 12 Month Home Warranty included too!
Saving You Headaches and Hassles
One of my greatest strengths in helping home buyers is explaining EVERY step along the way. I will teach you what to expect BEFORE it happens. You will not have any surprises when you use my Designated Buyer Services..
As the home process unfolds you will receive frequent updates from me on where we are and what is coming next.
You will find me very easy to contact via cell phone, email and text messaging.
If you leave a message, You will hear back from me QUICKLY...that's a guarantee!
